Man who worked as a Plumber to sponsor his education bags Petroleum Engineering degree with first class

A young man named Gabriel Eze, who worked as a plumber to pay his school fees, has finally obtained a Bachelor's degree in Petroleum Engineering with First Class Distinction from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Nigeria.

Gabriel is a Nigerian man who sponsored his education through his plumbing company. While narrating his story on Linkedin, he said that his academic journey was both fulfilling and extremely difficult as it took a lot of determination and perseverance to complete it.

He said he comes from a family of five, the third child, and unfortunately he lost his father when he was just seven years old. Due to his mother's unemployment, he never expected to pursue a college education.

Gabriel said that because he was determined to succeed, he chose to help the family as little as possible. He enrolled in a plumbing course while in high school, which he completed and started his own company, Ductspan Enterprises.
